today skies start to clear, and actually still pretty mild outside. that does start to change later on, it is cold front after all. for now, it is not terrible outside. there are spots where you're finding some dampness. that specifically is across the northern most counties, see with the southerly win flow, tell where the winds is coming from just by the way the precipitation is moving through. see how it is sort of moving up upright and riding along the frontal boundary pushing through. that's where you start to see these showers blossoming and bubble up. they've been doing that over the last hour and a half here just outside of philadelphia, so, personally, i come in from the west, and i ran into just couple of, you know, speckles on the windshield, had to flick the windshield wipers once, that was pretty much it. that's over spreading the region throughout the course of the morning before it crosses through. here is a storm in it entirety there is cold front being dragged through, any hint of stronger storms it, would be confine off to the south. thinking just showers at this point. and obviously it is way too warm out there for any snow. you have it basically go out to canada to fine any wintery precipitation.
let me walk you through future weather here too. what you will find throughout the course of the morning next couple of hours is that some of you may not even see one drop of rainout of this, but damp roads for sure. definitely looking for some showers here and there, in, again, scattered fashion. so, rain gear, i wouldn't call it absolutely necessary but if you are going to be standing on a train platform, waiting for a bus, probably decent idea to have either your rain slicker or umbrella at the ready here in case. you never want to get caught off guard. even toward the early afternoon, future weather trying to hang on, cup ill of the little leftovers here, things start to clear out with time, many of you will likely see sun before it goes down over the horizon, but we are talking about gradual clearing throughout the day as opposed to just, you know, one fell swoop this is out of here. do keep that in mind. later on we expect 70 degrees, still warm obviously, because it is somewhat of a slow mover, but later on tonight that colder air does start to nudge in, and that does mean the thermometer starts to respond, 41 degrees the overnight low, still hint after breeze, but starting to taper off.
